Under the Influence in Jersey City

Under the Influence in Jersey City

Recently I rediscovered a small book gifted to me many years ago. Page after page, the catalogue is an eruption of color in splotches and patterns on vessels that barely contain, yet seem to embody forces of nature…. “Artists get inspiration from the entirety of the universe — from every-day objects to profound philosophies. The […]

A Goddess in Need of a Name

A Goddess in Need of a Name

She is a Goddess, a hunter, a gatherer, and a vessel. The sum of many parts, she is a nest of stories, pieces that hold mysteries of their own, finding a way to weave together a sacred place. As we all do each day. Perhaps she is a portrait of our authentic selves, our inner network of […]

Poetic Moment

Poetic Moment

She was not sure what idea she wished to express but the thought that a poetic moment had touched upon her took life within her like an infant hope. She stepped onward bravely.   James Joyce. I took a little liberty with Joyce’s quote, making it gender appropriate, but I love the sentiment. Often I don’t […]

Up for Air

Up for Air and into the deep. Going into the studio, or actually, my garage or driveway with cans of spray paint, assorted nets and a large drop cloth is the first step of my work. The shifting patterns created by the nets as stencils on the blank canvas are the primary layer of the […]

Time Flies in My Drawers

Time passing seems to be a thread that has run through my work. Marking time, cherishing moments. Time Flies is from a series I did when my sons were infants and toddlers. Clothing they quickly outgrew, became a vehicle to share stories of childhood, memory, and motherhood. Time Flies is one of my favorite pieces from the […]
